A weight (with a mass of 71 kg) is suspended

from a point near the right-hand end of a uni-

form boom with a mass of 51 kg . To support

the uniform boom a cable runs from this same

point to a wall Vertical Height (m) is 7

Horizontal Distance (m) 6

and by a pivot on the same

wall at an elevation of 3 m.

Calculate the tension T in the cable. The

acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .
